Covid-19 is here

President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a national state of disaster and issued a lockdown until end of April. Subsequently, the national state of disaster was extended and structured with different emergency levels. This measure, put in place to save lives, hits the poor and unemployed especially hard.

During this time our team in Samora Machel initiated a Community Action Network CAN group – a self-organised support system aimed at mitigating the impact of the crisis.

They set up hand washing facilities, run a soup kitchen, check in with vulnerable members of the community to ensure that they are fine, disseminate information.

We set up a special fund to assist the team in this effort and invite our friends and supporters to make a donation.

What the funds will buy: food items for the soup kitchen, airtime and data to stay connected, soap, sanitiser and cleaning products.

How to donate: Snapscan, Backabuddy, or bank account.

#No one is safe until we are all safe.
